Constants¶
NumPy includes several constants:

numpy.
Inf
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of (positive) infinity.
Use
inf
becauseInf
,Infinity
,PINF
andinfty
are aliases forinf
. For more details, seeinf
.See Also
inf

numpy.
Infinity
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of (positive) infinity.
Use
inf
becauseInf
,Infinity
,PINF
andinfty
are aliases forinf
. For more details, seeinf
.See Also
inf

numpy.
NAN
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of Not a Number (NaN).
NaN
andNAN
are equivalent definitions ofnan
. Please usenan
instead ofNAN
.See Also
nan

numpy.
NINF
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of negative infinity.
Returns
 y : float
 A floating point representation of negative infinity.
See Also
isinf : Shows which elements are positive or negative infinity
isposinf : Shows which elements are positive infinity
isneginf : Shows which elements are negative infinity
isnan : Shows which elements are Not a Number
isfinite : Shows which elements are finite (not one of Not a Number, positive infinity and negative infinity)
Notes
NumPy uses the IEEE Standard for Binary FloatingPoint for Arithmetic (IEEE 754). This means that Not a Number is not equivalent to infinity. Also that positive infinity is not equivalent to negative infinity. But infinity is equivalent to positive infinity.
Examples
>>> np.NINF inf >>> np.log(0) inf

numpy.
NZERO
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of negative zero.
Returns
 y : float
 A floating point representation of negative zero.
See Also
PZERO : Defines positive zero.
isinf : Shows which elements are positive or negative infinity.
isposinf : Shows which elements are positive infinity.
isneginf : Shows which elements are negative infinity.
isnan : Shows which elements are Not a Number.
 isfinite : Shows which elements are finite  not one of
 Not a Number, positive infinity and negative infinity.
Notes
NumPy uses the IEEE Standard for Binary FloatingPoint for Arithmetic (IEEE 754). Negative zero is considered to be a finite number.
Examples
>>> np.NZERO 0.0 >>> np.PZERO 0.0
>>> np.isfinite([np.NZERO]) array([ True]) >>> np.isnan([np.NZERO]) array([False]) >>> np.isinf([np.NZERO]) array([False])

numpy.
NaN
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of Not a Number (NaN).
NaN
andNAN
are equivalent definitions ofnan
. Please usenan

PINF
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of (positive) infinity.
Use
inf
becauseInf
,Infinity
,PINF
andinfty
are aliases forinf

numpy.
PZERO
¶ IEEE 754 floating point representation of positive zero.
Returns
 y : float
 A floating point representation of positive zero.
See Also
NZERO : Defines negative zero.
isinf : Shows which elements are positive or negative infinity.
isposinf : Shows which elements are positive infinity.
isneginf : Shows which elements are negative infinity.
isnan : Shows which elements are Not a Number.
 isfinite : Shows which elements are finite  not one of
 Not a Number, positive infinity and negative infinity.
Notes
NumPy uses the IEEE Standard for Binary FloatingPoint for Arithmetic (IEEE 754). Positive zero is considered to be a finite number.
Examples
>>> np.PZERO 0.0 >>> np.NZERO 0.0
>>> np.isfinite([np.PZERO]) array([ True]) >>> np.isnan([np.PZERO]) array([False]) >>> np.isinf([np.PZERO]) array([False])

numpy.
newaxis
¶ A convenient alias for None, useful for indexing arrays.
See Also
Examples
>>> newaxis is None True >>> x = np.arange(3) >>> x array([0, 1, 2]) >>> x[:, newaxis] array([[0], [1], [2]]) >>> x[:, newaxis, newaxis] array([[[0]], [[1]], [[2]]]) >>> x[:, newaxis] * x array([[0, 0, 0], [0, 1, 2], [0, 2, 4]])
Outer product, same as
outer(x, y)
:>>> y = np.arange(3, 6) >>> x[:, newaxis] * y array([[ 0, 0, 0], [ 3, 4, 5], [ 6, 8, 10]])
x[newaxis, :]
is equivalent tox[newaxis]
